We are currently seeing regular, urgent care and surgical appointments using curbside service only. We are still restricting lobby traffic at this time and are keeping our door locked. Please call our office at 803-469-6077 for additional instructions. Upon arrival please remain in your vehicle and one of our staff will come out to greet you as soon as possible Due to limited staffing you may get our voicemail system when you call. Please leave a message as we check this frequently during the day. We hope to be back to normal lobby hours and services in the near future.
